Swoop™ Portable MRI system creates new product category for accessible, cost-effective MR imaging

Guilford, CT, Oct. 14, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Hyperfine has received a Best Practices Product Innovation award from Frost & Sullivan for the company’s category-defining portable MR imaging technology.  Analysts from Frost & Sullivan, a leading growth strategy and research firm, describe the disruptive innovation as a “massive leap forward to democratizing MRI.” Hyperfine’s Swoop™ Portable MRI System is a point-of-care MR imaging device that wheels directly to the patient’s bedside, plugs into a standard electrical wall outlet, and is controlled through a wireless tablet, making MR imaging accessible and immediate.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) uses a magnetic field, radio waves, and a computer to produce detailed pictures of the body’s internal structures that are clearer, more detailed, and more likely in some instances to identify and accurately characterize disease than other imaging methods. However, fixed MRI systems can be inconvenient and inaccessible for providers and patients, particularly when time is critical such as with stroke.  Transport to the MR suite demands complicated scheduling coordination, moving patients, and, often, 4- to 6-hour patient backlogs – all which compromise the utility of MRI as a diagnostic tool in time-sensitive settings such as intensive care units and emergency rooms. Furthermore, high capital investments, electrical power needs, and significant maintenance requirements present barriers to adoption across all populations, acutely so for developing countries and rural geographies. 

Hyperfine designed the Swoop™ system to address the limitations of current imaging technologies and make MRI accessible anytime, anywhere, to any patient.

The Technology 202: Apple and Verizon say 5G is here. That’s not exactly true yet.

“5G just got real,” Verizon chief executive Hans Vestberg said onstage, as he touted his company’s plans to double its availability in some cities and roll out to 60 new markets by the end of 2020.

But in reality, 5G remains a work in progress throughout the United States. 

Access to 5G networks is limited to a handful of U.S. cities, and in some instances, it’s currently slower than 4G speeds, my colleague Geoffrey Fowler has found through tests with multiple phones. And my colleagues note that the fastest early deployments have been concentrated in areas most Americans aren’t visiting very much since the pandemic began such as stadiums. 

“It will likely be a few more years before we see what kind of revolution 5G will bring about in the tech world,” Stan Adams, the deputy general counsel at the Center for Democracy and Technology, said in an email. 

The future of 5G hinges on a smart government allocation of a scarce resource – airwaves. 

Washington policymakers broadly agree that 5G is important especially when it comes to the United States maintaining its tech dominance and competing with China, which has aggressively embraced the next generation of wireless networks. But there are competing proposals for how the federal government could most quickly and effectively commercialize the most valuable airwaves.

Many experts say the future of 5G depends carriers having greater access to airwaves known as mid-band spectrum, which is ideal for 5G deployment because it provides both fast speeds and greater coverage. But much of that is controlled by the Pentagon, which currently uses the spectrum for radar and aviation. And the future of those airwaves is in doubt. 

Last week, the Pentagon drafted a request for proposals for a new military cellular network that would lease extra

Rajasthan Royals Implement RightEye’s Advanced Dynamic Vision Technology to Improve Players’ Performance

0 Comments

Dynamic vision testing and training system aims to provide elite cricketers with competitive edge.

The Rajasthan Royals (RR), an Indian Premier League foundational cricket team, has adopted RightEye’s Dynamic Vision testing technology and Dynamic Vision Trainer to improve its players’ sports vision and gain a competitive edge that will differentiate the team from the rest of the pack.

Elite sports teams require their athletes to perform at the peak of their potential. Exceptional dynamic vision is critical for cricket players to excel in a sport that requires superior ball tracking, visual speed, and visual processing skills. The ability to see an object in space and understand how fast and where it is traveling is paramount for athletes’ success.

As the Royals prepare for the upcoming IPL season in Dubai, most players on the team have already been tested. “The fast-paced sport of cricket demands that our players have outstanding dynamic vision,” said Royals COO Jake Lush McCrum. “Plus, we play under floodlights, which introduces another element requiring the athletes to react and adjust accordingly. With RightEye’s innovative technology we can go even further to gain a competitive edge and offer our players a unique opportunity to strengthen their on-field performance. These are vision skills that every cricketer should be measuring regardless of skill level, which we will be implementing with our first XI as well as our junior teams.”

The FDA-approved RightEye Vision System™ tracks the amplitude and velocity of rapid, involuntary, and oscillatory ocular movements, measuring changes with eye movement. The system records, analyses, and reports eye movements in real time – without goggles, headgear or other invasive wearables. The revolutionary solution will let the Royals design a customized program to ensure improved dynamic vision translates to on-field wins. The RightEye system is portable, and the tests can be
